naybear:

Currently, the pointer is only available on the active symbol chart.

Having the pointer available on the other charts is a great suggestion, though, and I will be sure to pass it along to the development guys.

Sure, just press CTRL-B to cycle between bar, line, Candle and bar with open charts.

Im a fan of drawing  on my charts, so I have a few questions:
1) I have the  default black bakground, when I go to draw the cursor converts to a BLACK crosshore, resulting in not seeing it. Is there a way of changing the color of the drawing crosshore?
2) How can I be presice with the Horizontal Trend line, and pointed at Ex: 55.33 extactly? Can I manually with the numeric keys on the keyboard shifted up and down?
3) Do you have an option were the trendline automatically shows the value at wich it was set?

pipeacosta,
Most of these questions would have been far more appropriate in their own topic or if asked in the Drawing Trendlines, Regressions and Writing Notes on a chart topic as they don't specifically seem to relate to this one.

I can't say for sure if this is the cause, but this can frequently be corrected by changing your Precision Select cursor.

- Open Control Panel
- Open Mouse (listed under Printers and Other Hardware in some versions of Windows)
- Click the Pointers tab
- Select Precision Select and click Browse
- Change to a different crosshair and click Open

You might want to try cross_rm.

Trendlines are drawing tools that must be placed with the cursor. I do not know of way to set them to an exact value (with the keyboard for example).

QUOTE (pipeacosta)
Can I manually with the numeric keys on the keyboard shifted up and down?

This on not an option that is currently available.

You can compress the Charts somewhat using the plus(+) and minus(-) keys on your keyboard but I don't believe this will get you to 20% for all symbols. It is possible to force a larger scaling using the Custom Scaling feature:

Chart scaling - arithmetic, logarithmic and custom scaling

It is not currently possible to draw trendlines or have indicators extend into the future in TeleChart.

It should probably be noted that the Drawing Tools in Blocks are far more extensive.
